Ivanovo investigator caught swindling
The Head of the Municipal Investigative Department No.1 of the Russian MIA Administration has been caught swindling in the Ivanovo region.
The Investigative Committee of Russia for the Ivanovo region has instituted a criminal case under part 3 of Art. 30 and part 3 of Art. 159 of the Russian Criminal Code against a high-ranking police officer; she is accused of attempted swindling committed by a person through its official position.
The investigative bodies have established that on September 5 this year, the Head of the Investigative Department No.1 of the Russian MIA Administration for Ivanovo attempted to fraudulently steal 250 thousand rubles from a local resident. She told the man that the money was required to bribe high-ranking officials in the regional Administration of the Ministry of Internal Affairs in exchange for assistance in closing the criminal case against the man and discharging him from liability.
The Head of Investigative Department has failed to accomplish her criminal intent. After she had voiced her proposition to the man under investigation, he has turned her to the local MIA Administration. The criminal has been detained as part of the further operational activities. She is currently under house arrest.
Law enforcement agencies are conducting a complex of investigative and operational measures aimed at establishing all the circumstances of the crime, as well as gathering evidence. The criminal investigation continues.
For several days now, the minds of the public in St. Petersburg are occupied with one piece of news – Lieutenant-General Umnov, head of the Main Directorate of the MIA for St. Petersburg and the Leningrad Region, leaves his post and sets off for a promotion to Moscow. Sergey Umnov is allegedly designated for the position of deputy minister of the MIA Vladimir Kolokoltsev. However, on the sidelines of the ministry they expect not a promotion for the Petersburg general, but an honorable resignation with the consequent loss of political weight.
